Job Description

Job Description 

Senior application developers manage teams of computer software engineers to create and update programs used by business professionals. They must establish what a customer needs, delegate projects to team members and follow up to verify all projects are completed on time and as requested. A master's degree in information technology or a similar field, previous work experience and various certifications are typically required for this upper-level position though relevant experience may replace some training and education. 

Senior application developers (SADs) work in the computer industry supervising other application and system developers. Computer application software engineers focus on the user's needs in regard to the functions of business-related computer software, specifically in this listing the Student and Exchange Visitor Program External Training Application (SETA). 

Working with individual clients, government agencies or larger companies, SAD examines the clients’ goals and review the current technology to determine what upgrades can be made or what new programs should be installed or developed to help improve efficiency. Since SADs act as supervisors, they often delegate the duties of upgrading and installing new systems to a team of application software engineers. 

Job Duties 

SADs maintain the job duties of a supervisor as well as a lower-level application developer or engineer. These duties can include regular consultations with clients concerning software, creating new programs, and testing newly installed programs to verify functionality.
